Teabaggers: “Do As We Say, Not As We Do”
Gotta love those wacky teajobs and their empty soundbites. “Limited Government,” “We The People,” “if I ran my business the way the government…” — Riiight. Scratch the surface and you’ll find:
Over one billion dollars worth of earmarks requested by the Congressional Tea Party Caucus. Two-faced motherfuckers. How’s that Tree of Liberty thingy workin’ out for ya?
The 52 members of the caucus have requested a total of 764 earmarks that add up to $1,049,783,150. Cool, that “redistribution of wealth” isn’t such a bad thing after all.
The vice president of Citizens Against Government Waste called them out on their double standard:
“It's disturbing to see the Tea Party Caucus requested that much in earmarks. This is their time to put up or shut up, to be blunt. There's going to be a huge backlash if they continue to request earmarks.”
Nah. By the time the next election rolls around, the public will have long forgotten about this. Either that, or it’ll be Obama’s fault.
And here’s another example of the contempt politicians have for their constituents. The State of California has a $6 billion deficit. Meanwhile, California lawmakers have an annual $5 million car allowance. And it’s all courtesy of those lowly taxpayers whose services have been cut to the marrow.
